Commenting on the publication today (Tuesday) of labour market figures showing employment falling by 56,000, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“The threat to working families of the hardest possible Brexit has damaged economic growth and is now hitting the labour market.
“The government must stop playing games with people’s jobs and rule out a disastrous no-deal Brexit. And MPs must not support any deal that will hurt workers’ rights, jobs and livelihoods.”
- The Trades Union Congress (TUC) exists to make the working world a better place for everyone. We bring together more than 5.5 million working people who make up our 49 member unions. We support unions to grow and thrive, and we stand up for everyone who works for a living.
